Abstract
    Psammina zonaria sp. nov. is the first member of this genus described from bathyal depths of the West Pacific. It is characterized by strong compartmentalization of the interior space and strictly directional growth. It appears to live attached to hard substrates, with the stiff but fragile test sticking up in the near-bottom water layer.
